It’s time to get out of town for a few days.
We gave my grandmother an option for an 80th birthday trip, and she chose … Las Vegas. So, Sin City it is! She turned 80 on Friday (she lives in Cartersville, but started the first leg of her birthday tour in Huntington Beach, California with my aunt and uncle), and we will be meeting her and my aunt in Vegas on Sunday. Four days of betting on sports, playing poker and trying my hand at the craps table sounds like a great birthday destination to me!
Truth be told, it’s only my second trip to Vegas, and the first one was years before I turned 21. So I’m experiencing Vegas in its true element for the first time.
I’ll be back on Thursday, hopefully towing a brand-new car that I won and a couple thousand dollars, too!
